Sponge Heroes – Sep Winner

Who is our chosen hero in September?

Once again it has been such an honour to receive so many nominations for our Sponge Heroes competition for September. We have read through more of your incredible nominations this month! We really do wish that we could pick more than one winner!

This month’s winning nomination was sent into us by Stefan:

Stefan nominated his home dialysis team & nurse Karen for our Sponge Heroes competition. They have not stopped since the outbreak of Covid-19, ensuring all of their patients were still able to have their life saving treatment. They really have gone above and beyond, not only by providing his care, but also by going out of their way to bring them essential supplies to keep them going.

Stefan has been shielding since March and continues to, and doesn’t know how he would have gotten through it all without Karen & the rest of the team.

A sponge cake for 8 will be making its way to Karen and the home dialysis team soon to say thank you on behalf of Stefan for being his personal heroes and making sure he’s been well looked after over the past few months in particular. And for carrying on their exemplary care for all of their patients. Stefan will also receive a cake card as a thank you from us for sharing his wonderful story.

As we said, there were so many wonderful stories that were sent into us in September. We’re really looking forward to receiving your nominations for October. Don’t worry if your nominee wasn’t selected this time, you can always send us your stories again for our Sponge Heroes Competition – who knows, your nominee could be the October winner!

All you need to do is email your Sponge Heroes story to us – [email protected]. Make sure you know the nominee's address, so we are able to send them a cake if they win! Read our competition blog to find out more.
